“It has been My Intention to make Books of My Word so profound that the mere reading of them could convert any being on Earth, or anywhere else, from the ego-possessed life of mortality and darkness, to the life of Divine Love-Bliss—without the slightest qualification, in the case of any being that moves or is. This has been My Intention, this is what I have been Doing, this is the significance of My Years of ‘Consideration’.
For Me, it is a single thread of Argument, a single Conversation, without the slightest softness of mind, lack of comprehension, or forgetting. It has been a consistent, every-day, twenty-four-hour-a-day, Conversation with Me, for all these years.
From the night I Sat on Melrose Avenue and Spoke, to this night, it has been a single Conversation, in which I do not regard any being to be a fool. I just cannot do so. That is why I Speak as I do. Because I take everyone seriously. Always have. It is what has given absolute Integrity to My Divine Avataric Life and Word.
So these Books are My Personal Word to each of you. And to every being, from now and forever. My Personal Word. Lots of Words! But I think you can dig the Company, right? I mean, you cannot read five, ten, fifteen of My Books, and still remember them all. You have to go back and read them some more, and the rest of the Twenty-Three. And then there is all the supportive texts. You people have a lot of reading to do! I am Talking about detailed reading and practicing, day after day, all your life!”
Adi Da goes on to Say:
“So, My Intention with these Books is to Give them to everyone, not to have them in My room, nicely printed, merely. They must fall through your hands to everyone on Earth, and fall out of your mouths to everyone on Earth—and everywhere else. Because sooner or later, all of you will go everywhere else.
Remember Me, and you will bring Me with you, and serve beings.
Not a fraction of what is required for your Realization of Me has been denied to you. Nor will it ever be. So these Books go to all, with My Blessing.”
~Adi Da Samrajashram, 1996
A ‘Cautionary’ Disclaimer
Adi Da is not generally understood and accepted as a True Realizer by the casually curious. He is seen by the typical reader – both the ‘TV-minded’ consumer and the guarded skeptic – as a ‘glorified egotist’ and someone to stay away from. This warning to keep away is in some sense correct, but for the wrong reasons! The ‘TV-minded’, the hopeful consumer, and the independently minded skeptics who need to keep their guard up should stay away. For Adi Da is a Light and a Fire. Adi Da is not a ‘darling’ – he does not speak or teach to satisfy those who are looking for comfort in ‘hopeful’ philosophy, or needing to buy a consumer message that ‘you are loved’ and ‘everything works out ok’.
Adi Da does not teach to ‘win’ any fictional dharma battles. Adi Da talks and teaches ‘The Real’. He does not ‘save face’ or save ego, he goes to the root of the sense of separate self. He’s a no-nonsense, straight-shooting, Liberating Blissful Fire. He will attract and repel you in an instant! He will confound your mind so quickly you will feel you are spinning in a cyclone of mirrors. And you know something, you will be. For the Light of the Real is the perfect reflector – and you will only see yourself and what you have not fully inspected. So, best be hip to this – and do not enter casually. And if you do enter, do so with the full understanding that you will be Tested and Confronted by a Great Light, AND a most sublime Attraction, by which ‘the ego’ will be addressed for what it indeed is – an illusion and a cramp looking for release. So be it.
Adi Da Samraj (Bubba Free John) talking to his students in 1975.
“Today everything that was regarded previously to be secret can be found at your local bookstore. It is foolish to presume that you can treat it as if it is hidden knowledge. It must, therefore, continue to be openly but rightly Taught, and the right demands must be placed on people, as well as right offenses.” – The Fire Gospel , Adi Da Samraj, 1982.
